8 months - Yep read it and weep tobacco companies, no money from me!

The last two months have been great but what a crazy darn ride the first 6 months were. There were blocks of days ( possibly weeks) that I was completely out of control. Angry, sad, hating everyone, hating life, buzzed, energised, lethargic, crying, hysterically laughing, eating everything that was edible and possibly stuff that wasn't! I'm telling you I was a total nut job - A complete peanut.

I ranted and raved and raged, I moaned ( called myself Moaning Myrtle for a while) but I got there. It took perseverance and the ability to see It for what is was. AN ADDICTION. I knew I was not going to die from crying and ranting but there was a good probability that I would die if I didn't stop smoking.. Be strong, be brave and strap yourself in, it's a heck of a ride!

    Wow Cranky, 8 months and still fighting ?
    Just goes to show, how different it can be. I think I am on the other extreme.
    You must have swallowed Lia's Margaret. But it's ok, she does not want her back :)
    You had one hell of a fight, and stayed in it ! Big pat on the back.. You one tough cookie :)

    Not so Cranky after all. Your roller coaster ride sounds just like mine did. 100% effort gives 100% reward. Well done on your 8 months and thanks for sharing so poetically.
